About Shudipto Dishari

Dr. Shudipto Konika Dishari joined as an assistant professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at UNL (2016- ). She has been a post-doctoral researcher in chemical engineering and materials science and engineering at the Pennsylvania State University. She graduated from National University of Singapore with a PhD in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (2010).

Throughout her multidisciplinary research career, she has developed a wide spectrum of research experience spanning from energy to biomedical applications. Her research interests include synthsis and development of polymers and polymer based nanomaterials. She is interested to explore how the polymers behave in nanoscale materials and how those propeties can be optimized for renewable energy and biomedical applications. To pursue research on innovative polymer design and understanding of material interfaces, Dishari has received prestigious  awards, like, DOE Early CAREER Award (2019), NSF CAREER Award (2018), Baxter Young Investigator Award (2014). In recognition to her reseacrh accomplishments, extraordinary teaching abilities and academic promise, Dishari received UNL's Harold and Esther Edgerton Junior Faculty Award in 2019.

Dishari is an active organizer of symposiums and sessions in national meetings through platforms, like, American Chemical Society (ACS), American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), and, American Physical Society (APS). She is also a member of NCMN's  "Education and Outreach Committee" and greatly involved in educating middle and high school students, including women and minorities.
